    Towards the end of June I have A-level exams, in particular I have one day in which I have:
    Computer Science - 2 and a half hour paper (morning 9AM)
    Decision 1 - 1 and a half hour paper (afternoon 1PM)
    Mechanics 2 - 1 and a half hour paper (afternoon 1PM)

    So my first exam finishes at around 11:30. This gives me a one and a half hour break before my next exam... What do I do in this time to recover after that exam - it could go awfully?
    Then I take my next exam which is decision 1. This'l take till 2:30 PM and after this exam, I may get a half an hour break in quarantine till 3:00 and then take my M2 paper till 4:30.

    How can I improve my concentration and optimise my chances of being successful in these exams?

    Drink and have snacks and don't go over any last points because when you go into your next exam those points that you just covered in your break will either be fresh in your mind and you will forget the revision that you have done or you will forget the last points and you will remember your revision.

    If you want to, you could revise the last points of a different topic

    possibly when you are revising do it in the same order as the exams
    like when practicing do a computer science paper then the decision 1 paper then the mechanics paper
    then on the day you would be used to it
    Good luck, it would be a tough day but I'm sure you can do it
